Rocket Forward: You Launch Lives

This campaign ended on October 17, 2018, but you can still make a gift to University of Toledo by clicking here!

Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 16 and Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018 for The University of Toledo's Day of Giving, Rocket Forward: You Launch Lives.

Last year, the generosity of more than 1,600 alumni, students, faculty and staff members, and friends of the University raised more than $450,000. Collectively, your contributions changed lives!

In 2018, we are counting on everyone in Rocket Nation to join our 36-hour fundraising campaign to help students launch their UT educations and complete their degrees; to help faculty members continue research that impacts lives; to fund new drug therapies and medical advancements that improve patient care; and to support many UT programs across campus.
